We represent bicycle accident victims.
The accident lawyers at The Burnside Law Firm believe in preventing accidents than filing for compensation. We know bicycle accidents can result in terrible physical injuries.
Better Sage Than Sorry
We encourage bicycle riders to protect themselves. We have taken various steps to encourage bicycle riders to protect themselves, we have given away 1000 bicycle helmets and sponsored public service announcements about bike safety. We take every opportunity to prevent the tragedies we see every day in our work. We encourage the use of bike trials and are lobbying for separate bicycle lanes. A majority of brain injuries suffered by bicyclists in a crash could have been prevented by a helmet.
According to the Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute every year:
- More than seven hundred bicyclists died in crashes with motor vehicles
- About 540,000 bicyclists visit emergency rooms with injuries – 67,000 have head injuries, and 27,000 have serious injuries requiring hospitalization.
From our offices in Athens GA, we represent bicyclists all over Georgia:
- injured in an accident resulting from the negligence of others
- struck by car and truck drivers who failed to see the rider
- struck by cars failing to yield the right of way
